Frank + Sara

Frank + Sara hosted my biggest wedding of 2017! It was held in "God's Country" as Frank described Mareeba, Queensland. Photographically, Mareeba is a gem. Golden light, rustic architecture and open landscapes to wander.

With an ice cold esky we headed towards a best mates farm which was the perfect place for a photoshoot. Rusty sheds, mango plantations and a cane farm in harvest = Endless photo opportunities! The ceremony was held at St Thomas of Villanova Church and the reception hosted by the Rosa family in their own backyard... The celebrations continued through the night with a mix of Australian and Italian families sharing stories, laughs and dancing the night away.

"To Jason, 
Thankyou for photographing Frank's and my wedding day. Looking through the 700 photo's you gave me, it is hard to pick out a bad shot. You are a true gentleman and having you in my personal space while getting ready felt very natural and I hardly knew you were there. Your photo's take on a life of their own, capturing the essence of the moment and that is all I truly wanted, however you also managed to capture the lighting and made everyone look like movie stars. I cannot fault your enthusiasm, natural ability to make people feel instantly comfortable and your professionalism. I look forward to our next shoot, when ever that may be.
Thanks from Sara & Frank"

Neil + Alex

Hosting a ceremony in the Botanical Gardens and a reception only a few minutes away in your own backyard was a pretty smart idea from this bride and groom. I love the idea! You celebrate in the comfort of your home, it requires no late night taxi drives and you can wake up with a possible hangover in your own bed!

Neil + Alex were a pleasure to photograph. It was a carefree photoshoot with friends. They followed my lead as I pointed out a few spots to explore and cane fields to hide in. The highlight of the trip was how we rewarded ourselves after finishing up early. A quick Maccas run for a 60¢ cone did the trick. Alex went fancy and spent extra on a chocolate flake!

Siobhan + Pat

Siobhan + Pat took their wedding to new heights by celebrating with family and friends at AJ Hackett. Pat took the plunge and asked Siobhan to marry him... Ok, enough innuendos!

After a ceremony in the rainforest the bridal party took the new husband and wife duo to a nearby pine forest for a few cold beverages. YaY! My favourite environment to shoot in and beer! The love started to flourish when the newlyweds ended their photoshoot roaming the cane fields while the sun set. I may have got a bit trigger happy with the camera at this point...

Love From The Bride...

"Jason captured our whole day! He didn't miss a thing and blended into our wedding quite easily. We had so many compliments on how good a job he was doing on the night! And the photos are proof enough of that! They are AMAZING! Biggest thanks to you Jason! Highly recommended to anyone who asks."

Michael + Megan

Michael + Megan had the right idea. Take over an entire tropical resort for the weekend, invite closest family & friends and get married. The Elandra was the perfect place to entertain guests with an epic pool deck lined with palm trees. Mission Beach is only a few steps away, and if you're lucky you may get to meet the local cassowary family living around the grounds.

These two will always have a special place in my photography career. They were the first couple that I did an engagement shoot for.  Im not going to lie, we all had nervous butterflies on that day. However, from the engagement shoot we built a level of trust and comfort. I'm so grateful for this, as it allowed me to capture the genuine love they have for each other on their wedding day.

Michael + Megan, thanks for having me :)

Kirrah + Mitch

Kirrah and Mitch’s gorgeous Palm Cove elopement proves that all you need for a magical forest wedding is family, some ceremonial wine, and a private getaway to say “I do”!

An intimate ceremony was held in the shade of the rainforest with views spanning the coast of Palm Cove. Once the formalities and congratulations were complete I took the loved up couple on a romantic adventure through the property's gardens and forest.
